    ...so I came out of the closet.

    As of today I am an openly gay man. And you know what? It feels great. I know it's a bit self centred to start an entire thread on this, but I can't express how difficult it's been to keep this away from my family for so long and, more importantly, how much relief I feel tonight. After hearing my grandmother's vicious barbs about today's news I just decided enough was enough, I no longer want to hear this crap from the people who are supposed to be my nearest and dearest. So in the car, on the way home, I just said to my mother "I'm gay." And that was it. I was shaky at first but am now so relieved.

    Now I've been accepted for who I truly am I'm ready to pursue life to the fullest extent without the fear of judgement and persecution from my peers.

    It's great that you're gay, but I also have no idea who you are.

    You're in a good place... the JCC is one of the most gay friendly communities I've encountered on the internet.

    Good for you.

    You were already "out" on the JCC, right? I could've sworn I knew.

    Yes, I wasn't making any secret of it on the internet. But this was a whole different league, something that I kept putting off until today.

    Glad to hear of this, Chewgumma. It takes a lot of courage & self respect to do this in your actual life, and I admire/am a bit envious of that. Don't let anyone ruin your self respect.

    Congrats man! This must have been tough, but I definitely applaud anyone who can find the courage to come out. Well done!
